    Opening week!1992

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Y-K9I13vmSk

    this is a rare video of the making of fantsamic! After watching this I started wondering what it would be like to be in attendance on the opening week. did the show go off with out a hitch, was there a buzz in the air, and did people flock to Disneyland perhaps after seeing a commercial for fantasmic? Also what could have it been like to be on the opening crew???

    so I guess I'm asking for stories about what it was like to see the first shows or even be in the shows for that matter.

    The stories I've heard is it wowed guests, and word of mouth got around, people would come to see the show from everywhere.. Every now and then it would get cancelled due to weather or what not, and the crowd would litterally mob, garbage cans were thrown, people were in tree's.

    OMG UPLOAD NOW!!!!!!

    I didn't see the show opening night but I was there for the first year. I just remember the collective ooooos and awes in the audience. and I think they were still using buterflys or glow sticks or somthing during the ending.

    In a word... He!l... I was not around for it but I knew a lot of the old timers when they started. G.C. wise, I pretty much cut my teeth on the MLEP bye bye, and that was the only thing they could draw a comparison to!
